Reprint.
Forced to resign after being wrongly scapegoated for a tragic midair disaster, former Navy TOPGUN instructor Luke Henry has opened a private aerial combat training school in the Nevada desert -- with the aid of a cadre former aces and full support of the government. But the Defense Department's contract comes with strings attached: Luke must train a handpicked group of pilots from the Pakistani Air Force in Russian MiG-29s that the U.S. has supplied. These suspicious foreign nationals are being placed at the controls of one of the world's most potent aerial weapons, and it's Luke job to make them proficient. But the strangers may have a secret agenda that strikes directly at the vulnerable heart of their American benefactors, a nightmarish scenario of devastating terror that Luke Henry must expose and combat -- in the skies above his nation, if necessary.
After starting his own private aerial combat school, Luke Henry learns that his contract with the U.S. government comes with a price--he must train a group of Pakistani Air Force pilots chosen by the Department of Defense.
